through election day. not a one day deal. there is imposition on the candidates, a requirement to have a kind of solemnedy that you would when people are throwing all kinds of charges around. since the obama campaign is far more negative. i have seen in the ads i have seen the last couple of days still really harshly negative on romney because they really don't have a positive agenda. that's going to restrain what the democrats can do to some extent closing argument. >> it also distracts watching this stuff. here in the northeast. which is obama country. we expect obama to carry every state in the northeast with the exception of new hampshire. pennsylvania, believe me, pennsylvania is in play obama campaign was counting on a lot of those negative ads. people aren't going to be paying attention to them because that storm is ripping right through that state right right now. >> absolutely. >> three days of ads in pennsylvania. all of that the psychology, the money at the federal level that's going to have to be used to restore the northeast, we're talking billions and billions of dollars.

the impact on the election, sir? >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families and i'm worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. >> and with only eight days to go, the election just might have to take care of itself. president obama shut down his campaign activities today. there are no public campaign events scheduled tomorrow for president obama. or vice president joe biden. the romney campaign announced mitt romney will host a so-called "storm relief event" in ohio tomorrow with nascar's richard petty. and country music's randy owen. if the serious aftermath of this hurricane runs into this weekend then for all practical purposes the candidates may have already made their closing arguments to the voters. what they have to say now may not be heard over the storm coverage. team obama's last public act took place in ohio while the president was in washington. >> we went to florida last night and he got
important election of our lifetime. people feel that way because the one that you're in. i do think that obama's victory could create a major ideological shift in the country. and obama's losing could have something to do with where we were a decade ago. it can be very unique and very promising. we could be doing some major advancement that would be great for the environment. obviously, the youth vote is very critical. it is also very unusual that people care so much.

for a while. portions of the northeast could be without power maybe until election day, do we think in. >> yes, yes. the weather is very impactful to the weather from a turnout perspective anyway. we've done research that shows 30% to 35% of independent voters will not vote if the weather's bad. not only on top of that, we have upwards perhaps of 10 million people losing power this week. i'm sure there won't be that many by election day but it will be very disruptive, as well as disruptive to the campaigns. it throws a monkey wrench into the entire campaign and election. >> we don't know if there will be alternative plans as a result of that. i mean, already we were hearing earlier that the administration was considering not releasing the jobs numbers on friday. what are the alternative plans if, in fact, this does impact election day and the opportunity for those independents to vote? >> i think it could get really, really complicated and state by state. i don't i think we'll know unless the dust clears. it's an unprecedented event. you overlay it on timing before the week of the election, ma
